We are pleased to confirm that the Club will be running Senior and Junior Tournaments this year. We have slipped the dates for finals days by a couple of weeks to allow plenty of time for all the matches to be played. Junior Finals Day will be on Saturday 17th July * and Senior Finals Day will be on Sunday 18th July *.
There will be the usual main events with plate competitions running alongside each of them for anyone eliminated in the first rounds. Players will automatically be entered into the plate competitions so there will be an opportunity for everyone to play lots of tennis.
The events are:-
• Ladies’ Singles
• Men’s Singles
• Ladies’ Doubles
• Men’s Doubles
• Mixed Doubles
We are aiming to have a public draw for this year’s events on the evening of 10th May and, to ensure the tournament gets off to a flying start, we will try and schedule as many matches as we can over the weekends of 15/16 May and 22/23 May.
Due to Covid restrictions, there will not be the usual sign-up sheets in the clubhouse. Instead you will need to email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no entry fee for any of the events but please note that the club does not provide balls for tournament matches other than the finals, so you will need to bring your own. To participate you must also have paid your subscription for the upcoming membership year.
To be included in this year’s events, please send your email with the following information by no later than 8 May 2021.
